Many people cope with chronic conditions that may have failed all traditional treatment methods. Pain and suffering from these conditions is real and when it becomes debilitating, it’s very difficult to know where to turn. The Utah Medical Cannabis Law now allows for another treatment option.
Cannabis contains cannabinoids that can interact with our bodies natural receptors to help treat diseases much like other well proven medications. These cannabinoids can help reduce inflammation, reduce pain signal transmission, decrease nausea, and improve depression. Utah is treating medical marijuana much differently than other states. The policies in place actually treat medical marijuana much more like a medication used to treat disease. People with qualifying conditions now have another chance to treat their condition when traditional medication regimens haven’t worked.
During an evaluation for medical cannabis your chronic condition will be evaluated to see if cannabinoids could be helpful in the treatment of the disease. Some of the qualifying conditions in Utah are ALS, Alzheimer’s, Autism, Cachexia, Cancer, Ulcerative Colitis, Epilepsy, Nausea, Pain, PTSD, or a terminal illness.
Many patients who meet criteria for the medical cannabis treatment option have debilitating conditions that make it difficult to leave the home, stand in line, and wait in waiting rooms or doctor offices. We want you to keep you as comfortable as possible and make your evaluation convenient.
